Sitting next to the well documented Nought Bank Boulders and spread though the woods below Guisecliff are a mass of blocks. Some problems have been long-known to hold quality problems such as A Little Sparkle 7a, Afromoss 7a+ and the Mop Top problems. Over the years a number of the great and good have beavered … More Guisecliff Bouldering
The little 2015 topo has been fully updated. There is a whole new block – it’s rough and some of them might be found testing. Please hit the link below for the new topo. https://unknownstones.com/naze-nib-end/
This fine venue that is very close to Bingley is open again with some restrictions. It will be fine evening spot once we have some dry weather! Please take note and follow the arrangements.
The return visit to finish the exploration that started in 2015 has been done – where does the time go? Some quality, rough rock, problems will shortly be unveiled. It would be possible to walk in from Beamsley Beacon but the ‘commando approach’ from the A59 parking is great fun.

Come on weather! Give us one last throw of the dice. I can’t believe that this solitary offering is really the last that 2018 is going to give us.
The tree-decking wasn’t us but it did give us a chuckle. It could only happen in Yorkshire. Simon’s Seat and Lord’s Seat were still in peak condition despite the heavens opening (and staying open for some much of the week). Both spots just keep giving to those who are willing to brave the walk, the … More Joy of the Season to All!
Dan Varian has clearly been busy at Ash Head with a great sounding Sloane Rangers 8a, just right of Dave Sutcliffe’s Drill Press. He’s also added a couple of 7s. I wonder if the wall/blunt rib just right of the classic Chicken Head Rib might go when the cool weather arrives…… ?
